As I began to love myself

当我开始爱自己

英诗

As I began to love myself

I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth.

Today, I know, this is

"AUTHENTICITY".

当我真正开始爱自己,

我才认识到,所有的痛苦和情感的折磨,

都只是提醒我:活着,不要违背自己的本心。

今天我明白了,这叫做

As I began to love myself

I understood how much it can offend somebody as I try to force my desires on this person,

even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it,

and even though this person was me.

Today I call it

"RESPECT".

当我真正开始爱自己,

我才懂得,把自己的愿望强加于人,

是多么的无礼,就算我知道,时机并不成熟,

我才明白,我其实一直都在正确的时间,

and in my own rhythm.

Today I call it

"HONESTY".

当我开始真正爱自己,

我不再牺牲自己的自由时间,

不再去勾画什么宏伟的明天。

做自己热爱,让心欢喜的事,

用我的方式,以我的韵律。

As I began to love myself

I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health –

At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism.

Today I know it is

"LOVE OF ONESELF".

当我开始真正爱自己,

我开始远离一切不健康的东西。

不论是饮食和人物,还是事情和环境,

我远离一切让我远离本真的东西。

I quit trying to always be right,

and ever since I was wrong less of the time.

Today I discovered that is

我不再总想着要永远正确,不犯错误。

我今天明白了,这叫做

英诗

As I began to love myself

I refused to go on living in the past

and worry about the future.

Now, I only live for the moment,

where EVERYTHING is happening.

Today I live each day, day by day,

and I call it

"PERFECTION".

当我开始真正爱自己,

我不再继续沉溺于过去,

也不再为明天而忧虑,

现在我只活在一切正在发生的当下,

今天,我活在此时此地,

如此日复一日。这就叫

『完美』
 

refuse /rɪˈfju:z/ v. 拒绝;回绝

perfection /pəˈfekʃn/ n. 完善;完美

I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick.

my mind became a valuable ally.

Today I call this connection

WISDOM OF THE HEART.

理智就变成了一个重要的伙伴,

这种组合我称之为,

Even stars collide,

and out of their crashing new worlds are born.

That is LIFE!
